July offers us an opportunity to take our lives from ordinary to extraordinary. According to Numerology, July is a 4 universal month. This #4 month, we are connecting with divine alchemy. Alchemy is the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary. This month we are the Alchemists of our life. We get the opportunity to turn our lives into something extraordinary.
We get help doing this on Tuesday, July 5th, when Mars, the planet of action, ambition, and desire leaves its all-time favorite spot in Aries and enters into chill Taurus, where it'll stay until August 20.
Mars doesn't exactly love hanging out in Taurus, mainly because the sign moves a bit too slow. Mars loves to go for it full tilt, but in Taurus, we are reminded that sometimes the best way to speed up is to slow down.
Taurus is very hardworking but also knows the best way to do your sacred work is from the place of a full cup. This transit comes to remind us to tend to our inner garden with self-care, downtime, and pleasure as a way to nurture our outer lives.
This transit helps us stay focused and keep working on plans and ideas, not from a place of scarcity but a place of abundance. Allow yourself to go slow this summer. Allow yourself to refill your cup. Take time to think through the changes you want to make and then take baby steps forward.
